back in the saddle

So I’ve had a bit of a slump… 2 whole days off- now that I write it down it doesn’t seem like such a big deal but I’ve pretty much been fretting over it the whole 2 days- partially me just feeling a bit burnt out and partially life not allowing me any time to run. Last week was spot on perfect- I did everything on the schedule including a very exhilarating bike ride with the ol’ man (I haven’t been on a bike since the ’80’s!) We just rode around the cemetery for 30 minutes but it was so much fun!

Today I did 30 minutes on the treadmill but I am amazed at how much faster I can run- that’s something I never expected as I’m not too concerned with speed- but it’s very cool to be able to keep pushing that speed button higher and higher!

 

Tomorrow is Friday, time for… you guessed it, The Long Run. It’s my last week with 4 miles as “the long run” so I’ll try to appreciate how “easy” it should be!
